Investments in the Growth, MidCap Growth, and/or Value Fund(s) are subject to the risk of rising and falling stock prices. In recent years, the U.S. stock market has experienced substantial price volatility.

In the case of the Growth, Short-Term Government, National Tax-Free Intermediate, Missouri Tax-Free Intermediate and Kansas Tax-Free Intermediate Funds, the Adviser has contractually agreed to limit each Fund’s total annual operating expenses (excluding interest, taxes and extraordinary expenses) until October 31, 2010. In the case of the Value and Bond Funds, the Adviser has voluntarily agreed to limit the total annual operating expenses (excluding interest, taxes and extraordinary expenses) of the Funds and reserves the right to discontinue the expense reimbursement at any time. A Fund’s total annual operating expenses may increase without shareholder approval.

The method of calculation of the 30-Day Standardized Subsidized Yield is mandated by the Securities and Exchange Commission and is determined by dividing the net investment income per share earned during the last 30 days of the period by the maximum public offering price (“POP”) per share on the last day of the period. This number is then annualized. The 30-Day Standardized Subsidized Yield reflects fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements recorded by the Fund during the period. Without waivers and/or reimbursements, yields would be reduced. This yield does not necessarily reflect income actually earned and distributed by the Fund and, therefore, may not be correlated with the dividends or other distributions paid to shareholders. The 30-Day Standardized Unsubsidized Yield does not adjust for any fee waivers and/ or expense reimbursements in effect. If the Fund does not incur any fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements during the period, the 30-Day Standard Subsidized Yield and 30-Day Standardized Unsubsidized Yield will be identical.
